You inquire about Burbank - strange to say I never met him. He has been as busy in one field I in another. Nevertheless I long ago recognized him at a distance as a rare man a genius from his marvellous industry & insight in making flrs & fruits Now his fame has gone abroad over O & even his immediate Santa Rosa neighbors are beginning to know him.[in margin: Copy letter of J.M. to Prof Butler]00197#9188
